Provided you have an AirPrint compatible printer/an app/jailbroken your iPad, sure... there is no reason you shouldn't be able to print.

Yes you can. Though you might have to buy a new printer.

Print N Share allows you to print to network and USB printers. You need to install a small free companion app on your computer for USB printers. For network printers Print N Share fools iOS 4.3 into thinking it is an AirPrint compatible printer and passes the print job to any printer it sees on the network. The nice thing about it is being how portable the iPad is, you can take it anywhere and print to any network printer. Not just AirPrint enabled printers. Print N Share needs to be running in the background first, then you can print from apps as well as email and Safari.

Just download AirPrint for windows or Mac, don't bother paying for anything. Free software exists. I setup my brother 2170w last night, works great shared off a windows 7 box.

This.

IMO, it's the best option out there if you don't feel like buying a compatible printer.

You can also print from iPad 1 and a windows machine. It requires a small "hack" in windows. No need to jailbreak. I print often to my LEXMARK 850 Pro.

There's also an easy way to get it to work on Macs without any third-party software.

LOL nothing...check out the link in my previous post. It activates AirPrint for any shared printers on all iOS devices and no third-party software gets installed on your Macs or your iOS devices. And it's free.
